well, down here yonder south... we are very much looking forward to spring...

and as a start to what we have to look forward to, I give you these Aussie beauties....

1. dendrobium Aussie Charm x (Dot Sheen x Aussie Wow)

this is the first blooming of this plant which I've had for a few years bought as a seedling... every month I check RHS listing to see if I could shorten the name... but alas...


2. Dendrobium Sunstar x Hilda Poxon 'Speckles' - a recent purchase and really I am not too sure where all the speckles are...



3. Dendrobium Lorikeet 'Red Imp' x Star of Gold 'Bathurst' - this next beauty is my favourite... bought two years ago, this is the first flush and there are a few more spikes to come...



and finally.. or rather... until the next group to flower...

4. Dendrobium Kungara - another recent purchase... alas, as beautiful as she is... I couldn't get a decent photo!!!


awww.. I love the plants heralding Spring...

I like the Lorikeet very much.

I don't like your mention of spring though, Tim, that can only mean one thing for those of us round the other side....then again we are expecting it to be 101° today.

I've noticed the sun turning again today, back towards the horizon...I get much better sun in the autumn/spring than summer/winter.

Heather, it was 7 celsius this morning... aaaarghh!!!

as an aside, does anybody know why it is colder on the third month of winter rather than during the middle month???
